So the field strip on mine doesn't work too well so far. I was able to get it together while writing this review, but my thumb hurts from trying to get it to lock for two minutes...

Pro:
Discount
Blade
Look
Sharp af

Cons:
*The pocket clip is really in the way
*Sticky deployment/doesn't full deploy
*Field strip is not 100
Its Big

This seems a decent knife but it is bigger than I expected and I am not a big folder guy. I would love to see it at 1/2 to a /1/3 this size. I bought it because I wanted to try a field strip knife and it was a good price. If I realized the size I wouldn't have bought it but thats on me.
Good knife

For $29.99 you canít beat it. The field strip is a cool feature and although I was worried about the centering it was easy to adjust. The only con is that the action isnít great. Knife wasnít super sharp but the steel took a great edge.
Great Knife For Price and Intended Use

I bought this knife because of the price and my intent to use it only as part of my emergency and personal protection. It is sturdy without any play either side to side or up and down. It fits my long fingers perfectly and even though it may be a bit heavy it feels tough and ready to do the job. I recommend this knife whole heartedly unless you are planning to cut cardboard or whittle with it.
Excellent Knife!

Great knife. The 4116 holds a better edge than most my other 420 or 440A blades. Takes an edge easy. The field strip technology functions great. Deployment and lock-up are very good. The BladeHQ price make this a satisfying purchase. Thanks!
Not great, still usable

I got this knife as a gift. I may not have bought it for myself. The blade shape is very practical, and I like the metallic "clink" it makes when you flip it open, but that's pretty much where the good ends.

The field strip thing is cool, but I've accidentally flipped the release lever a couple times. The knife feels really loose and clunky, like it's gonna fall apart at any moment. They basically paid no attention to ergonomics, in favor of futuristic style, which actually makes it kind of look like a toy, to be honest. Also, the blade gets butter knife dull after the slightest amount of use.

Yes, it's inexpensive, but even other knives at this price range are built much better.
nice knife

all in all i like the knife little to big for every day carry but reminds me of the knifes i carried while i was in but over all i do like it the clip is not the best in the hand and wish it had a little more form to the hand to it but grips no issue seems to keep a blade pretty well but i would worry about using it for any thing but fish so four our of five

This knife is a beast blade with perfect designed handle, fits the hand well and is cut you sharp. If your a knife snob elite "expert" perhaps you should leave enjoyment of knives to those common sense minded real knife users. I own this knife and it is a well made tool or great as a EDC for any chore including a true respect for design and function. Field Strip or not this is knife and that is all it needs to be!
Looks cool but junk.

1) Blade steel is basically German 420, which for this price is unacceptable.

2) The blade hole is only for show and is extremely hard to use to open the knife

3) The action sucks as the flipper tab is uncomfortable and the detente is extremely strong

4) Field strip tech is finicky and a cheap gimmick.

5) Coating on the handles feels cheap

Basically don't waste your money on this as there are other knives in the same price range that are actually good like Civivi
